Planets in Transit
on December 1, 2011
I have had a copy of this book for 13 years and have consulted it regularly. It does give a good overview of the POSSIBLE effects of transits, but it must be understood they are only one person's viewpoints. I have read transits of his pointing to possible hardening of the arteries and other quite bizzare and extremely negative possible occurrences. It seems most transits carry an extremely negative flavour even if they point to a good one he usually brings you down with a negative. In my early days I used to get quite upset all day after having read about future transits, eg a year long transit called ADVERSITIES. While it is nice to be prepared, astrology interpretation is anyone's guess. The book was written a long time ago and surely he has changed his mind many times as we all do.(If he hasn't, what is that saying?) Our minds are believing his mind. That's all. While I can see he has a great understanding of astrology, and has studied it in great depth, his own interpretation can only be personal to him. The best gift or advice you can surley give another through astrology is hope and something positive, even if a tricky transit may be looming. It's not WHAT you say but HOW you say it.
Many people look at the transits on Astro.com (Where you can view your current transits taken from his book) and may, like me, often NOT be able to see even a glimmer of hope EVER on the horizon. I viewed all mine for 2012 and there was not one positive transit on the horizon. How can that be??. Life by it's very nature is both positive and negative. All I can say if you want to take this seriously develop very thick skin and take it all with a bag of salt. A person who is feeling vulnerable, having relationship issues, suffering with illness, or in other dire straits does not need to read this negativity, they need to be uplifted and encouraged . Probably only a few (one or two) of the transits in this book can be described as 'uplifting' in my view. The bottom line in my long experience of having having read every one of his transits backwards, and having for a long time belived every word he wrote, is that it is an extremely negative preachy book.
